So you're not volunteering to lead this project, I guess.  ;)

Yes, that would work.  However, having separate /etc/nologin
and /run/nologin looks like a useful feature, as I mentioned

I'm glad to hear this because it means that one could include
a file containing only the "forwarders { }" statement.

However, allowing programs to write bits of named's
configuration file and to restart named still seems kludgy.
It would be better if there were a standard way for programs
to inform named of appearing and disappearing forwarders.
